Re: Finally running after 50 years

In the video it looked like a Fordomatic bell crank, but no rod attached going to the trans.

Re: Finally running after 50 years

Don't use the large hole with a bushing at the top of the carb throttle lever. That will make it require more travel to get to wide open throttle than the factory carb had. There should be a smaller...

Re: '56/'57 Lincoln Continental Mk II

Yes, they were like a larger version of the Ford Y-Block. Too bad Edelbrock and others didn't make much speed equipment for them. I'm sure there were cams available. I know Hilborn made mechanical...

Re: Chevy/8BA distributors

In '74, Chevy had HEI in passenger cars and Corvette, but trucks still had the smaller window caps and points.

Re: 255 mercury carb rebuild kit

Hi Jim,

The carb number you listed was incomplete. Maybe it wasn't stamped complete. Should be EAC-9510-J2
I've had very good luck with the kit on this link. Lowest price I've found too. You...

Re: .Is this old "Y"block a 54 or 55 ? or what?

I would rather have a 292 than a 312. 312's had some issues with main web cracking because of larger diameter main bearings. Pretty sure the serious performance engine builders use a 292 block with a...

Re: .Is this old "Y"block a 54 or 55 ? or what?

ECZ-A block is more than likely a '56 292, but also used to make 312's. Don't think they were used in '57.

Re: .Is this old "Y"block a 54 or 55 ? or what?

'55 Mercury's had pale yellow blocks, heads and intake. Like dmsfrr said, it's best to get the block and head casting numbers. Could be anything from a '54 239 or 256 Merc, to a 312 with mixed parts....

Re: 1954 Lincoln Shop Manual

Yes, the '53 Lincoln had a dual diaphragm distributor. It also had a cable going to the carb linkage that would manually retard the timing by rotating the point breaker plate. Starnge system.

Re: 1954 Lincoln Shop Manual

That all depends if the distributor has been updated with a 1957 or later centrifugal advance one. If you remove the distributor cap, and the rotor is spring loaded in the counter clockwise...

Re: 1954 Lincoln Shop Manual

The Loadomatic distributors were used from '49 through '56 on Ford, Merury, Lincoln and T-Bird. Six and eight cylinder engines. It was also used on six cylinder engines well into the 60's. I just did...

Re: 255 mercury carb rebuild kit

To me they were good carburetors. Just need to pay attention to detail when putting them together. They flow a little more air than the Holley 94 type 3 bolt carbs, since the Mercury was a larger...

Re: 255 mercury carb rebuild kit

Thank you Charlie ! I do troll both the late and early V8 sections. I would be happy to help if you feel uncomfortable at all with this style carb. Advice or actual work.
